It doesn't look like he wants to be a team player (from what I have read) and let the Ravens extend him. So what options are available to lower his CAP hit?

pretty much nothing until next season.

Nothing.  Extending him is a risk in and of itself since Ngata is a guy that has talked about retirement before.

Why not get a deal done with Art Jones, have him in rotation and then next year he can take over for Ngata. No need to draft a replacement.

This unfortunately looks like a deal that we'll just have to live with.  I don't think we would want to extend him and kick the can down the road simply because he's talked about retiring before, and he is fairly injury prone.  We cannot afford to become the Steelers and start restructuring huge contracts, otherwise we'll just end up in cap hell like they are, and will be for the next few seasons.

Jones isn't durable enough to replace ngata or as versatile as him to replace him. In fact I don't think art ever played in a NT position.

Right now we have plenty enough cap space to get things done. There is no options with Ngata except to pay him and hope he delivers.

I've seen him play on the nose in pass situations but never in a straight 3-4.

Just gotta stick with him and hope for a better season. If not he can be cut/traded next year.

I forgot we moved Ngata to NT. I was thinking he was still at DE. In that case we have his replacement on the roster already, Brandon Williams.

I like the idea of keeping but Jones is going to cost a lot more than I think we are going to spend unless we forget about signing Monroe. I think we can miss out on Monroe and maybe try for the lineman from the raiders he will be cheaper and resign Oher on a cheap deal and we can keep Jones and Smith.

Still need another. We need depth on the line.

We signed him to this deal just before week 3 of the 2011 season, when he was at his peak. The problem was that we made far too much of the deal guaranteed money, so, as has been pointed out, there really isn't much we can do until 2015. That being said I think Ngata has at least one more season with the Ravens.

Ngata has had more injury trouble than A. Jones has had. Jones has missed slightly more games because Ngata has been able to play through a lot of his problems, yet it has seriously affected his production. Take the 2011 season for example. Ngata was on fire for the first four games or so, yet trailed off as the year went on.

It is also not uncommon for Ngata to play very well in the first and second quarters of games, but to disappear in the second half. He may just need to eat less and exercise more, but this could also be seen as evidence that his leg injuries get worse as Ngata continues to play.

Absolutely nothing. It's really just a shame injuries have plagued him so heavily since he signed that contract, could have had a HOF career. I give him massive credit for playing through the pain though. I guess we just have to hope that he can play at a solid enough level to maintain the respect of commanding a double team and freeing others up.

Hmmm I'm not even sure if Williams is really a true NT. I'm not saying he can't be but it will be important  for The Ravens to have a solid back up NT behind Ngata because they can't continue to use him  as much as they did last year and expect him to stay effective or healthy.
